Hi Murdo, the bike is going great and a really sweet ride, thanks a bunch. I initially had a dropped cylinder problem and high eng temp. The running issue turned out to be the fuel flow through the tap unless you had it turned to the precise position. Tap O/H and all is sweet. I ended up flushing the radiator and double flushed the engine side of things with demin water. I took it up to Mt Glorious yesterday for the usual gathering of the old (either riders or bikes it doesn't matter) and found myself getting a touch 'enthusiastic' with it (no alcohol involved) hence bringing the Spada online.
